Harrisburg, NC asked in Personal Injury for North Carolina

Q: Can you sue a work place if you get corona virus due to improper safety measures?

They do not require the wearing of masks even though it is state mandated. They also do not have hand sanitizer for the works at the cash registers. Although there is 6 feet apart labeled, people are invading the space of the employees and most aren't wearing masks

A: A North Carolina attorney could best advise, but your question remains open for a week. A workers' comp attorney could probably answer your question more meaningfully than a personal injury attorney, as you're describing something arising in the course of employment. You could reach out to North Carolina workers' comp attorneys - many offer free initial consults. Good luck
